City Complete Stunning Comeback To Knock Swansea Out Of The FA Cup

In a dramatic game in south Wales, Championship side Swansea were 2-0 up against Premier League leaders City shortly before the half hour through a Matt Grimes penalty and fine strike by Bersant Celina.

"They ask all the clubs about the VAR (video assistant referee) and all around Europe the VAR is there and here it's not".

They are top of the Premier League, in the Champions League quarter-finals and have already won the League Cup.

Aguero then completed the turnaround at the end with a header despite appearing to stray offside and, had VAR been in use, their second and third goals arguably would have been disallowed.

Guardiola did not win a trophy in his debut campaign in England - the first season in his coaching career where he ended up without silverware - before leading City to the Premier League and League Cup in record-breaking fashion last season. "I know I'll be a failure if I don't win all the titles, I'm sorry", the City boss quipped.

Ironically Swansea had access to the system in the quarter-finals previous year - while still in the Premier League.




The magic of the FA Cup gave way to the crushing inevitability of Manchester City.

City piled on the pressure in the second half and Bernardo Silva halved the deficit after 69 minutes before Aguero's penalty hit a post and rebounded off goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt and then City snatched a late victor.

Aguero missed a glorious chance to score seven minutes from time, but the Argentine striker had the final say when he headed the victor two minutes from time.

Guardiola said: 'If it is not a penalty, and it is offside like the people say, I'm sorry.

"I don't understand why VAR is not used in this competition at this stage".

Speaking on Match of the Day, former England captain Alan Shearer said: "It is very wrong and very unfair".
